1968 Ford Mustang

Acapulco Blue V-8 289-2V

PROJECT

from

MustangBeginnings

Up for auction is an original

1968 “C” Code 289 Ford Mustang Fastback.

If you are a serious buyer, willing to pay a fair price, we would like to end the auction early. Please contact us through EBay.

When we first purchased this car, we didn’t know it came with so many original options. Please take a look at the Marti report attached.

An original Mustang destined for Canada so it came with an immersion heater for those frozen mornings, 4 speed Manual Transmission, console, power steering and power disk brakes, plus a Canadian non-emission system.

The car was an original Acapulco Blue Fastback, with a Black interior.

Obviously, this Mustang can be restored into an awesome Classic or you could easily make a Shelby or Eleanor Tribute Mustang

Please take a look at some of the pictures at the end to see how stunning a

Acapulco Blue Mustang can be when fully restored.

The good news is that, although the engine does not come with the car, we have lots of 289, 302, 351 V-8 blocks and/or complete engines. This is an original stick shift, but it could easily be changed over to automatic if you want to go that route.

This Mustang would be worth at least $30,000 to $40,000 when fully restored. ..

BODY:

This Mustang has been rust repaired in the normal areas, floor pans, and doors, and the frame is straight and the body is in decent condition, but both quarters will need to be finished.. Overall not that much is needed to get this Mustang body ready to paint.



INTERIOR:

The interior should be brought back to excellence. The good news is that you can see what is needed. You aren’t accepting someone else’s mistakes or bad repairs. The instrument panel is in good condition, but you will want a new dash pad. The seats will need recovering, but new covers are available to make the job much less costly. The door panels are missing, but you probably want new ones anyway.

ENGINE BAY:
Engine bay is in great condition, and we have pretty much any engine you may need. Please ask us for prices. You may want to consider dropping in rebuilt engine to get the car running and driving as quickly as possible. We have plenty of 351 Cleveland’s if you want to upgrade, from the original 289. Properly rebuilt, you will be blown away with the performance that a 351 Cleveland can achieve.

BRAKE SYSTEM:
The Mustang has front disk and rear drum brakes. They are intact and complete.


GLASS:
The car comes with both its front and rear windshield, but the front windshield is cracked and you will need a new one. The rest of the glass will be included as well, but there may be nicks or scratches which can be fixed or replaced.

MISC.
The Mustang comes with everything shown in the pictures, and most all of its parts. I have a couple of contacts for all the other NOS stuff you may need
At MustangBeginnings we are here to help you make your restoration a success. Please contact us if you have any questions.


THERE ARE NO SURPRISES HERE, I ENCOURAGE ALL INTERESTED BUYERS TO COME SEE THE CAR FIRST IF POSSIBLE OR SEND SOMEONE HERE TO INSPECT IT. WE HAVE COMPLETED OTHER 68 MUSTANGS AND KNOW WHAT IT TAKES TO COMPLETE THIS CAR. THIS IS A GOOD CAR TO START WITH. PLEASE REMEMBER THIS IS A 68 MUSTANG THAT NEEDS TO BE REBUILT INTO SOMETHING SPECIAL.
AGAIN, WE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE ALL INTERESTED BUYERS TO CHECK THE CAR OUT IF POSSIBLE THAT WAY THERE ARE NO MISUNDERSTANDING, MISTAKES, MISCOMMUNICATION, ETC.
THE CAR MIGHT NEED THINGS WE DID NOT LIST BUT THE MAJOR ONES HAVE BEEN LISTED. WE PUT THE WORD “PROJECT” IN THE DESCRIPTION TO COVER ANYTHING WE MIGHT HAVE NOT SEEN.
